Washington state's Gregoire on short list to replace Kagan

Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire is on the short list to replace Solicitor General Elena Kagan, an administration official confirmed Wednesday. Gregoire, who has been one of Obama's favorite governors attending meetings at the White House on everything from health care to education, is a two-term incumbent and former state attorney general. She endorsed Obama early, before the 2008 Washington state caucuses.
